Adopting a Formal Tone
Using Complex Verb Structures
Avoid complex structures and instead use ‘action verbs’.
Don’t say: ‘It would be great if you considered booking a consultation at some point’
Emails With no Passion
Addressing a group rather than an individual
Never write to a group, always write to individuals.. This is one of the biggest mistakes people make when writing to a big subscriber list. If a business has a subscriber list of 10,000 people they think they have to address a crowd of 10,000. Don’t do this. All successful email campaigns talk to people as individuals.
Losing the reader
Subject lines, headlines, are of course crucial if you want people to click through to the main body of your email. But every line should read almost like a subject line, in that it grabs their attention and makes them want to go on to the next line. If you lose their attention, they won’t be buying what you’re selling.
